Re: alleged illegitimate children

If one thinks about it, Thyra’s match was a boon to both parties. A princess about whom there might have been some sordid gossip is matched with the son of a disenfranchised monarch living in exile. She is thus married quite respectably, though not quite as advantageously as her sisters. And the royal groom, exiled and with few prospects, suddenly finds himself in the inner circle of a close-knit family that includes Danish, Greek, Russian, and British monarchs.
